Taurus sho

Anybody ran one. Guy at work has one and wants to race me. It's a twin turbo ecoboost v6.
It's also tuned.

Tune is huge on turbo cars. If your stock he could edge you out if your not on your game.

He is 365 at the crank, assuming the tune made up for any drivetrain loss let's keep the 365 number to the wheels. You should be 430 to the wheels if you're LS3, 390-400 if you're L99. They are very heavy too. If you lose, I'd say he beat you, not the car. Should be a close one either way, especially if he has the driver mod. Good luck

Thanks, he definitely has more experience and his cars all wheel drive also. So it's not a sure thing.
He said he ran a 12.7 last time he was at the track.

Driver's race for sure here. He's awd so he has that edge. The launch and top end power will be the rule of this race. Good luck!

Concentrate on your launch.....better to not blow off the tires against an awd. He will get the jump regardless. But you should out trap him. He is 12.7 but likely 105 or 106 mph. So work on catching him on the big end.

...and he has the advantage of after the race, of stopping on the way home to pick up some groceries.

I've ran a tuned one. Dig he will have a huge advantage and pull probably around 1-2 cars but you will catch him. Roll, its all you

Take him to a track. You will smoke him. He will get you straight track. They handle like a tank in the curves.
